Gene Watson's Peers within the country music industry believe in the sheer talent of this unassuming man from east Texas, so much so that Gene is regarded by many of them as 'the singer's singer' - and rightly so!

All of Gene Watson's Peers, who were contacted by The Gene Watson Fan Site, during 2007, were most gracious with their time and words.

It is here, within this special part of The Gene Watson Fan Site, that you have an opportunity to read a quote from Patricia Conroy, which she submitted to this site on Thursday 25 January 2007.

Sean Brady would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to Patricia Conroy who has made a special contribution to a unique part of this online 'celebration of a Lone Star Hero'.



Patricia Conroy
This quote was submitted on Thursday 25 January 2007.

'I can say that Gene Watson is one of country music's finest voices.

A true gentleman and top performer.



The first song that popped into my head is a favourite, 'Fourteen Carat Mind'.

He is one of country music's gems'.


Thank you, Patricia Conroy, for your support of Gene Watson.
